100% of students gave John Brown University 5 stars overall.
I attended Christian schools K-12 and really thought I'd end up at the local state school. My senior year I realized two things: 1) I didn't want to get "lost" in a crowd of 50,000 students and 2) I wanted my college experience to be in a Christian environment. JBU was the perfect place. It was affordable (as colleges go) and while an authentic Christian community they didn't stifle the students with rules about what music you listen to, how you date, what you wear etc. They realize you're an adult and you need to start acting like one. (There are some basic community covenant rules you agree to live by.) I loved my entire time here.
